10/29 (Tue.) To Make a Long Story Short (Host: Gavin)

文章gavintsai » 週三 10月 23, 2019 2:01 am

The YouTuber 谷阿莫 has been very popular for his ability to make a long story short.

Firstly, let’s watch some of his examples of making a long story short:

五分鐘看完[玩命關頭特別行動](Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw)

六分鐘看完[寄生上流]( Parasite)

While laughing with 谷阿莫’s YouTube videos, let’s talk about this topic in a casual way and then a more formal way.

Session 1 (to make a long story short, in a casual way to discuss.)

a. After watching a 谷阿莫’s video, generally, do you become more interested or less interested to watch that whole movie? Why?

b. Using some terms like 「大魔王」、「介紹男」、「備胎女」…is a clever way to efficiently form a general idea. In your real life, do you use some terms to quickly describe some roles in a group?

c. 谷阿莫 has some signature lines to catch attention successfully. May you share some examples of using one sentence to make people interested in listening to a whole story or a whole plan? [E.X. Who says playing video games means no future? [一級玩家](Ready Player One)

Session 2 (To make a long story short, in a more formal way to discuss)
d. In business environments, most people don’t have time for a long story. May you share your recent experience of briefing a plan?

e. Using charts/tables is also helpful to explain an experience more efficiently. Please take turns to try drawing a chart to describe your last tour or business trip

f. In meetings, all discussions are meant to result in actions. Please share your experience of a successful meeting, and a lousy meeting.

"How to make a long story short?", the art of presentation, I think it is very important.
I like the questions in the second session. Let's study the reading materials and do some hands-on practice in the meeting!
